The Relay for Life of Logan County has received the final results of the 2017 campaign.

Although the local goal was not met, there is still cause to celebrate the results as news of a possible 'cure' for one of the children's cancers has just been announced. The local fundraisers may be proud of the fact that money raised at Logan County relay events goes for research that makes such announcements, and cures, possible.

The 2017 relay results are as follows:

  • 23 Teams participated

  • 138 Registered survivors at the June Relay

  • 234 Registered participants at the June event

  • 626 Luminaria line the track at Jack Nutt Arena at Lincoln College
